In the recent versions of Teamfight Tactics season 6, we can see that the Challenger system has been nerfed by Riot quite a lot. We can talk about direct tweaks like reducing the bonus attack speed in 11.24 to the nerfing of a series of important pieces like Yone, Kai’Sa.
Kai’Sa was heavily nerfed in patch 12.1
Despite such a constant nerf, the Challenger lineup is still an extremely effective way to climb ranks, even after patch 12.1 came out. Even a player with an Infernixx account at the Western European server even climbed to the top 1 of Challenger by taking advantage of this lineup with 2 main stars, Fiora and Yone. So why is team-comp still so strong despite being nerfed continuously? Let’s find out together.
Infernixx has climbed to the top 1 of Western Europe Server Challenge
The lineup he uses the most is Challenge with Fiora, the main Yone
First, we need to mention the decline of two Gladiators – Chemistry and Kai’Sa – Idols. These are two squads that own the front line that is extremely “buffalo” and difficult to die with a large amount of blood of Gladiators and Giants. With the type of formation that needs to kill the opponent quickly to activate the Challenge effect, those too strong resistant units are hard counters that players can hardly solve.
Giant pieces that are too hard to take down are hard counters to the Challenger system
When the above squads are nerfed, gamers will no longer have to face such strong frontlines. Of course, Bodyguard units are still extremely popular in the current meta, but this is a type of chess piece that doesn’t have the ability to deal good damage, so the Challenger system doesn’t mind at all. This made the Challenger system with strong snowball ability in strong teamfights to rise rapidly in the meta of patch 12.1.
Next, the Challenger squad is not afraid of any Assassin team-comp even though this is an extremely hot game at the moment. In terms of damage, Yone or Fiora are both superior to Assassin units, while the survivability of these pieces is too good with the use of Angel Armor or available healing. As a result, the Challenger team often outperforms the Assassin squad in the ability to “stubborn”, even when it is 3-star units.
Yone’s damage is really terrible
In addition, with the tribe – the extremely open and easy to activate system of the Challenger units, you can get more powerful effects at the end of the game to win. Desirable units like Yuumi, Jayce also combine extremely well with the Challenger team, not to mention options like Braum, Leona… With this transformation, the Challenger lineup is quite difficult to catch. cards at the end of the game and can create breakthrough power if there are more Indian clans – systems.
If you can activate Fiora’s Guard clan, there will be a huge advantage
In short, with no longer being heavily countered, the Challenger team with two main units including Fiora and Yone is proving extremely strong in the current meta. This is not a strange way to play, so you can immediately apply it to your rank climbing process without having to learn or change the gameplay too much.
